Meet Clive

Post  stretchie_ on Thu May 31 2012, 09:36

I started an evening welding course the other week, once a week for 10 weeks and really enjoying it.

I was sticking bits of metal last night using different joints and ended up with my new mate Clive.




A couple of the welds














I've shaken it, dropped it, had it in a vice and knocked hell out it and he's still together. : )

Nice one Dan.

Can't help but notice that Clive's got a face like a welders bench.

That's just mean.... Even if it's true Very Happy

Been fun this weekend, seeing as it was a long weekend I did have LOADS of stuff planned:

- Rear caliper strip and rebubild with new pistons and seals on the Land Rover
- Make new speaker rings pods from MDF and fibreglass them to the doors so I can get some decent sized speakers in the Land Rover (never used fibreglass before)
- Replace steering box seals on Land Rover (seeing a pattern here?)
- Replace window regulator in front passenger door on Land Rover
- Make (or start to make) a smoker out of an old oil drum so we can do proper BBQ low and slow

BUT not one thing got delivered so I got the welder out instead.

I made Clive a friend this weekend, we call him Lunge



Also knocked up a latch to replace the broken one on the garden gate, a key holder out of some bar and some 75mm M8 bolts and a base for my tool box with some decent castors on it..

Ha ha, loving this thread, looks like your having some great fun there Stretchie pmsl

Some very nice looking welds there and some.. err, well, interesting ones Smile

I thought Clive looks a bit like the train signal thingy from Chuggington btw so I had to do a wee search....


And then I thought perhaps not blind
